iPhone : Californians: the “Public Safety Power Shutoff” is expected to begin tonight at midnight, potentially followed by additional shutoffs on Wednesday. Please be sure you're prepared. It’s critical that PG&E work to restore power as quickly as possible. twitter.com/nbcnews/status…

Twitter Media Studio : Today’s bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russia confirms what I talked about back in August 2018: Russians targeted Black voters and attempted to suppress Black voter turnout.

Twitter Web App : I think of America as a family—and like any family, we have issues. We have a history of slavery, Jim Crow, and segregation that we need to confront.

But someone came into our house and inflamed these tensions to turn us against each other. We can't let that happen again.

Twitter Web App : And let’s be frank: it’s time for Trump to stop using Twitter to play into our adversaries’ hands. With every deranged tweet, he advances foreign interests by dividing Americans. Social media companies must account for the role they play in amplifying Trump's dangerous rhetoric.

Twitter Web App : Together with my Republican colleagues, we've now confirmed what I talked about in August 2018: Russians targeted Black voters, and we must act urgently to protect our country’s elections. This is an ongoing threat and we must be prepared.

Twitter Web App : There’s more: “No single group of Americans was targeted by IRA operatives more than African-Americans.” They posed as Black Americans on social media to explicitly tell Black people “Don’t Vote At All” and “Our Votes Don’t Matter.”

Twitter Web App : Russians' “overwhelming operational emphasis on race” exploited “hot-button” controversies and used social media to stir up outrage. They used issues like race and immigration to “pit Americans against one another and against their government.”

Twitter Web App : Russian voter suppression efforts came in three forms.
1) convincing left-leaning audiences to boycott the election
2) promoting third-party candidates
3) Attacking Hillary among left-leaning audiences

Twitter Web App : America’s Achilles heel is rooted in racism, and this report confirms that Russia exploited deep racial divisions in a “strategic assault on the United States” to “sow discord” in America in the 2016 presidential election. Here's how they did it:

Twitter Web App : Thread on our bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee Russia report👇

"At the direction of the Kremlin," Russians threatened our democracy in 2016—and that threat remains for 2020. And one issue they exploited is racial tensions in America.

iPhone : The Supreme Court will soon consider weakening a 150-year-old civil rights law to make it harder for victims of racial discrimination to sue in court.

We can’t turn the clock back like this. I’ve filed a brief with the court urging them to preserve this law.

Twitter Web App : Let’s be clear about what is going on here: the White House isn't just pushing to overturn the Affordable Care Act—they have absolutely no plan to replace it or help the millions of people who would suddenly lose insurance.

They're a hot mess.

Twitter Web App : Next month, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on Trump's termination of DACA. I joined more than 170 bipartisan members of Congress in a brief to express our support for DACA. We can't rest until these DREAMers have the future in America they deserve.

iPhone : Jessye Norman’s voice was a gift. Her passing last week is a monumental loss to the world. May she rest in peace.

iPhone : Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court one year ago today—and his seat on the Court remains a national travesty. Read my op-ed on why I’ve called for an impeachment inquiry into Kavanaugh. elle.com/culture/career…

iPhone : Times have changed. We have to get smart on marijuana reform and give people of color the opportunity to reap the benefits that come from the legal marijuana industry.

iPhone : My mother was a breast cancer researcher who had two goals in life: to raise her two daughters, and to end breast cancer. That's how I know the importance of #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth.

Remember that early detection can save lives: get a screening and spread the word.
